WOYWW 129.

Good morning folks
Wednesday is hear yet again; travelling faster than the speed of light at the moment! I even saw the first Christmas tree up in someone's home the other day........ I feel a mince pie moment coming .....

Anyway back to my desk. I took these photo's yesterday because I knew I would not get chance to get in there last night after work.
So, here's the overview; do you like the cushion, I found it again the other day and decided it would be much better here. My Mom painted it and it was in my daughter's room on the bed for ages.
You'll see I've moved my DI back down as they were irritating me being higher as I then had to stand up every 5 seconds.
On the left is this little bird hanging which I'm trying to get finished; I thought it would be quick but Mr Mojo let me down a bit!
In the middle is this necklace from a charity shop and a box which I'm going to alter with bit's of the necklace. (And yes, the Turkish delight WAS delicious!)
Above that were some of the post it note pads done for the Craft Fair.
Lastly, I added this rack to the back of the door which I think works pretty well; after all, why waste space!
Other than that I've been working on the room, still loads to do but here's a few details if you are interested.
I rag rolled the walls which turned out well I think; the picture is one my daughter did which I really love and the metal "follow your dreams" we found in a tiny shop in Rottingdean.

So, there's my desk; all waiting for me to wake up enough to go out there; but I think I'll stay and visit you lot for a while first!
All desks can be found at Julia's place so do come join in the fun!
Just a quick little edit, my final calender page is on The Craft Barn blog today, hear is a peek but all the rest of the pics are there too with all the details so why don't you pop on over there too and say hi?

I do like 'proper' turkish delight so that box would have emptied pretty quickly at my house. Love all the stuff on your desk Neil - such a busy bee - and that metal sign o nthe wall is beautiful.

SueH said...

I’m surprised that your Mojo every takes a break Neil when you have a craft space like yours. I’m sure there must be something in there that will spark the flame so you can give that box a makeover.

I’ve enjoyed my nosy around this morning and thanks for stopping by mine and leaving a message.

Happy Crafting!

WOW a lot going on in your craft space. I am like you with the DI! I have to have them close cause I use them so much getting up each time to find the right pad drives me nuts. Love the room renovation. Have a great week and thanks for sharing. Vickie #64

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

WOW one busy man...with lots of ambition, all in the right direction too!!!! You'll love the over the door rack, and I love your rag rolling, I could use your talents right here in my house.
Great photos, have fun with all your creative ideas, love the simple little stamped DECEMBER too. Enjoy.

I think it's fascinating seeing the bits and pieces you start with, and then seeing the end product! I'm sure you're going to come up with a winner again for that box! The rack behind the door is ingenuous! Patsy from

Anesha said...

Wow, your space is so organised! Love the note pads and the cushion is so sweet. Have a lovely day. :)

Morti said...

One very talented daughter there - is she thinking of entering the animation industry? Great stuff on your desk this week, including the empty Hotel Chocolat Turkish Delight box. Of course it was delicious - I've not known them do anything yucky yet!
Thanks for the Ofsted sympathy - it's hard being a couple where one is a teacher, but I'm a frustrated teacher myself (had to quit the course due to ill health) so I get to live it ouit vicariously! Thanks for stopping by. Morti #22

The Crafty Elf said...

Wow Neil such a variety here today, thank you! That pillow is great and I love those note pads especially the one with the pelican and birds. Brings back years of memories at the beach with my family. Super idea, that rack on the door - very clever! Your daughters picture is just lovely too! I'm curious to see how the Turkish Delight box turns out I do hope you share it with us. Thanks for the peek and have a super week!

GLENDA BROOKS said...

I love your space! And the pictures of the bedroom are lovely! Happy WOYWW!

Shoshi said...

Ah... Turkish Delight! One thing I enjoy about Christmas is that my mum always gives me a box. Never a box like that, though, that I can upcycle afterwards!! Perhaps I should drop some weighty hints. The decorating is gorgeous - well done! And I adore that cushion... I've recently relocated my DIs too because I got fed up having to stand up and reach for them all the time! Thanks for the comment on my blog, Neil. I must be feeling a bit better because I'm actually wanting to get in my ATHaven today! I may even make it after Mr. Tesco brings my groceries. Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #70

Pam said...

Forget the desk...I'm drooling over those rag rolled walls. H.E.A.V.E.N.

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Lovely festive ideas today, but the thing that grabbed my attention was the Turkish Delight. The proper stuff, I hope, not the disgusterous pink jelly effort of Fry's fame - bleurgh. Proper Turkish Delight is lush :)
Hugs, LLJ #39 xx

Cathy said...

Really, really love that bird pillow (mainly because I am a bird freak) and anyone who loves turkish delight is a friend of mine. That room is so good, must have taken ages to do.

Julia Dunnit said...

You have to try things on for use-ability and locations of certain things are really important huh..it's taken me ages to find the right place for some of my stuff...ideally of course, it would all just be out and in front of me!! Your bedroom looks wonderful. Please please tell me that beautiful rose is a brilliant fake?!

April said...

Wow lots to see this week!! the room is lovely!!! love that necklace that you are going to use to alter the box - can't wait to see the result of that! x

Have a nice week

lisa said...

So many lovely things to look at here, Neil. I thought you'd popped out to a shop when I saw that rack on the back of your door. It looks brilliant.
It's so difficult to get all your stash in the right place so you are not forever getting up and down isn't it, still I always think it's good exercise!!!
That cushion is gorgeous!!
Happy WOYWW
